My Little Garden

I'd been wanting to have a little spot of earth to grow a few things in for a while now.  So, this year I did.  There's a little corner in the back yard between the driveway and our neighbors fence which I thought would be perfect. 

I'm not really sure how well all of this is going to go.  So, I didn't really want to invest alot into this.  I of course would love to make a beautiful raised bed.  But, I figured I better take it slow.

I have a little tiller which I used to till the dirt there and then I got some nice garden soil to add to it.  My sweet little Nene decided that I was taking to long to distribute the extra soil so she helped me out.  :-)  She's such a sweetheart.  Needs to work on patience (among other things).

I planted (from bottom to top) Onions, Sweet Peas, and Corn.  Of course I had to add a cute little garden thingy too.  :-) 

Hopefully I don't forget to water it this summer :-)  Its already super hot here.  We hit the 90's on Saturday :-)  I don't know what happened to Spring.  We went from Winter to Summer overnight.  Oh well, as long as my little garden makes it.

I hope this goes well for you! :)
It would be great to enjoy your own produce.

I almost missed this - I've not been blogging very much !
I hope it all works out for you. I've never tried vegetables but it's so great watching anything grow in your own garden - good luck with it all. x
